About half of Icelanders aged between 18 and 24 are considering leaving the country, Reykjavik-based newspaper Morgunbladid said, citing a survey of 1,117 people between Oct. 27 and Oct. 29.Since the population is only 300 000, that's a pretty big percentage leaving. And since it's the Iceland nation which now owes 4.6 billion dollars to the IMF, that's even more that each man, woman, and child left behind will have to pay.
“Tens of thousands” will depart, estimated Jesper Christensen, chief analyst at Danske Bank A/S, the biggest lender in neighboring Denmark.
Which leaves me wondering, what happens if everyone emigrates? Who pays back the loan then?
